Durable ebook formats?
April 8, 2010 9:00 PM Subscribe
Suppose I'm thinking of purchasing an e-book reader (or an iPad/tablet), and my primary hesitation is that I don't want to buy a bunch of e-books in a format that (1) will someday be useless or unreadable or (2) will lock me into a specific brand of hardware forever. What do I need to know?

Also assume that I'm primarily interested in unquestionably legal e-book acquisition. No torrents, etc.
